Headshots made simple

About The Speaker

Brian Mullins has been in business since 2005 where he started his photography career shooting for Cary Magazine. After a short stint photographing various bi-monthly assignments, he was promoted to chief of photography and responsible for all photography needs for the magazine. Food, Product, Architecture, Portraits, Event and Advertising photography were a few of the elements he was tasked to capture – all with an unforgiving editorial deadline looming over each shoot.

Since that time, Brian has continued honing his commercial photography skills for both in-studio shoots as well as in the field. He has worked with local and multinational corporations around the country for varying projects. He relentlessly pushes the technological boundaries using remote camera setups, specialized lighting, 360 tables and HDR techniques to create realistic yet vibrant commercial imagery that proudly represents products, services and events.

What you'll learn

Business headshots are often overlooked as “assembly line photography”, where it’s the same pose, same lighting, same head turn, rinse, repeat. While there are scenarios where that is needed, this platform class will cover how you can introduce diversity and unique photos into your work, regardless if you are shooting a 100 person project or the 5 person executive team. You will leave with a better understanding of the following:

  • Pre-shoot questions, how determine client needs (even when they don’t know them)
  • The shoot itself.. lighting, background, subject posing
  • Post production – how to streamline your culling & editing process.

We will have a live demonstration in the room as well to help understand the overall structure of the shoot.
